I am a PhD Student in American Studies at the College of William and Mary. Broadly, I am interested in digital humanities, information studies, and the cultural history of media. My curiosity in digital humanities began when I made the switch from Computer Science to history during my sophomore year. I sought to find a way to bridge my two interests and began advocating the use of digital tools for historical research. Later, I went to George Mason University, due to its commitment to digital humanities and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, where I received my MA in History. I have also served as Research Associate at the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab and currently serve as the Webmaster for the American Studies Program at William and Mary. Broadly, I am interested in the ways that technology has influenced American society, and this interest extends to analyzing the way that technology can help in disseminating and conducting historical research. I also maintain scholarly involvement in childhood history and the history of media.
